Cloud Security and Privacy--New from O'Reilly
An Enterprise Perspective on Risks and Compliance
Sebastopol, CA--Cloud computing has emerged as a popular way for corporations to save money that
would otherwise go into their IT infrastructure. However, along with the promise of cloud computing
there has also been considerable skepticism about the type and extent of security and privacy that
these services provide.
"Cloud Security and Privacy" (O'Reilly, US $34.99), written by three well-known authorities in the
tech security world, addresses issues that affect any organization preparing to use cloud computing
as an option.
This book walks you through the steps you need to take to ensure your web applications are secure
and your data is safe, and addresses regulatory issues such as audit and compliance. Ideal for IT
personnel who need to deliver and maintain applications in the cloud, business managers looking to
cut costs, service providers, and investors, this book provides the detailed information on cloud
computing security that--until now--has sorely been lacking.
With Cloud Security and Privacy you will:
- Review the current state of data security and storage in the cloud
- Learn about identity and access management (IAM) practices for cloud services
- Discover which security management frameworks and standards are relevant
- Understand how privacy in the cloud compares with traditional computing models
- Learn about standards and frameworks for audit and compliance within the cloud
- Examine security delivered as a service--a different facet of cloud security
"Cloud Security and Privacy is the seminal tome to guide information technology professionals in
their pursuit of trust in 'on-demand computing.' This book is required reading for those with the
mandate to secure the cloud, which is likely to be the dominant computing platform for the next two
--Jim Reavis, Cofounder and Executive Director, Cloud Security Alliance
"As the demand for cloud computing increases, security and privacy will become more critical. This
book examines the risks, trends, and solutions to consider when using cloud computing. It is
essential reading for anyone trying to develop an approach to adopting cloud computing."
--Izak Mutlu, Vice President of Information Security, Salesforce.com
